CHARLOTTE, NC – May 9, 2019 – Flagship Healthcare Properties (“Flagship”), a Charlotte-based healthcare real estate firm, has announced its acquisition of a 121,741-square-foot portfolio featuring six Class A medical office buildings (“MOBs”) in the Charlotte metropolitan area. Three of the MOBs are located in Concord, N.C., with the remaining three in Kannapolis, China Grove, and Locust.
The portfolio, which is 91% occupied, is anchored by Cabarrus Family Medicine, part of Atrium Health. The network of family practices and its sub-specialty offices including sports medicine, orthopedics and rehabilitation, leases over 75% of the total square footage.

Flagship Healthcare Trust, Inc. (“Flagship REIT”), Flagship’s private real estate investment trust, purchased the portfolio from CFM Medical Properties, LLC (“CFM”).
“All our physicians and owners at CFM are pleased to have worked with Flagship on the recent sale of our portfolio of medical offices,” said Dr. L. Allen Dobson, Senior Partner of CFM. “They are a trusted and professional organization and we felt that we made the right choice in selecting them for the ownership and stewardship of the properties.”
